picture of nearly grown baby barn owls from hungryowl.org
Oh aren't they beautiful, even at this awkward stage? I love the middle one. You can see his tongue sticking out. That's hard to get in a picture, but when they clack their beaks to threaten the photographer, they first stick out their tongues! "Tongue stickout, CLACK, tongue stick out, CLACK!" That's one of the classic ways Barn Owls make their feelings about the situation quite clear. And this photographer caught it! Good Job!
